H street is parking hell. Metro to Union Station, walk a short distance and catch the free street trolley. Drops you a half block away from Atlas!
I was very disappointed by the restaurants around the theater. They looked interesting on line, but when we got there 0 Sticky Rice and others - the places were not inviting, limited seating, poor service.
You can reach it by public transportation: Union Station and then the H street corridor tram. But it takes a long time. In this cold weather - I would cab it to the theater.
The Step Afrika show runs for about 1 hr, 15 min. No intermission.
There were snacks available for purchase, but a bit overpriced. $2.20 for a can soda, bottle of water, and candy bars.
I wore The dress for this event is very relaxed. My son had on slacks and my daughter had on a nice holiday dress. I felt that they were both over dressed, based on the number of tshirts, leggings, and jeans that sorrounded us. .
I wore Jeans and a sweater with comfortable boots. Be prepared to dance .
Fined next door at H St. Country Club. The BEST fish tacos.
Arrived early and found a parking space in front.
